Wooo, $2M has brought on a bit of a splurge, both in comments and some pledging.

Feels like we're crawling to $2m...

 

It feels like the Kickstarter CDN issues really slammed on the brakes for us... even with images fixed, hasn't picked up speed again.

I seem to remember that someone made a comment about George R. R. Martin contacting Reaper a few weeks before the start of the campaign (I think).  I'm hoping that since his dragons are technically wyverns that there can be some cross-over sales...

 

Assuming the Kickstarter servers can keep up.  <_< 

 

EDIT:  Sales is the wrong word, of course.  For now.

Whoa, really? That'd be cool. Any idea where that comment was?

Does anyone know what he contacted them about? Cause if it was something about maybe getting official game of thrones sculpts I would die. I would just fall over and die from sheer happiness.

I can't remember...  I'm pretty sure it was a Reaper Peep who let it slip, but they didn't actually say there'd been a collaboration, just that they'd had a chat.  

 

I do know that GRRM is a miniatures fan, which should be obvious given how many character minis there are for his books.

We're about halfway through the day now. According to Kicktraq, yesterday gain a total of $112,244. Today so far we've gained $44,843, about 40% of yesterday's total.

 

This includes some portion of the bump from the $2M reveals, but we've caught up a bit to where yesterday was.

I know I'm the minority but I have zero interest in dragons, but it's nice to have a $18 add on to bump the amount up to unlock stuff I want lol.

Uh oh!  I want all of those things!  

 

I think I will hold out on all the expansions though.  Unless I can find a spare $50 before next July then I will grab Dreadmere.

maybe someone from Reaper can clear it up for us

 

i definitely plan to paint my GoT themed, though not necessarily after one of the show's 3 dragons. In the books about the history of the world there are many more dragon colors that intrigue me more than the show ones

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
